Warwick Economics Lecture with Dr Thomas Curran
OC0.03

The Department of Economics are delighted to announce Dr Thomas Curran, Associate Professor in the Department of Psychological and Behavioural Science at LSE and author of The Perfection Trap, as the final speaker in our Warwick Economics Lecture series for the academic year.

'The Perfection Trap'

Date: Friday 26 April
Time: 3 - 4pm followed by a short drinks reception
Location: OC0.03

This event is for students and staff only and registration is required in order to attend.

Christian Soegaard will introduce the speaker and chair the session. You will have the opportunity to ask questions in a Q&A at the end of the lecture, as well as network at our drinks reception in the Oculus foyer after the lecture has taken place.

About the Lecture

This talk will be about the trap of perfectionism. Thomas will discuss the overzealous hypercriticality that germinates in a society that always wants more, and how, while perfectionism ostensibly seeks to improve us, it ultimately leads to hugely negative consequences for our personal wellbeing, performances, and the welfare of our communities at large. If you've ever wondered what's the matter with perfectionism, or why it seems to be the defining characteristic of our times, this talk is for you.

About the Speaker

headshot of Thomas Curran

Dr Thomas Curran is a world-leading expert on perfectionism, author of the best-selling book The Perfection Trap, and acclaimed associate professor of psychology at the London School of Economics and Political Science. His TED Talk on perfectionism has received over three million views, he has written for major international publications such as TIME magazine and the Harvard Business Review, and his work has been featured in the BBC, New Scientist, New York Times, CNN, and Wall Street Journal.

Faculty of Social Sciences Public Lecture with Andrew Oswald
FAB0.03

The Department of Economics are delighted to host our first public lecture in the Faculty of Social Science's lecture series with Andrew Oswald, Professor of Economics and Behavioural Science.

Societal Unhappiness and the Uncertain Future of Democracy

Date: Tuesday 30 April
Time: 5.30-6.30pm followed by a short drinks reception
Location: FAB0.03 

This event is open to the public.

About the Talk

Mental health and happiness are worsening through time in the United States*. Approximately 40% of citizens in Western Europe today report high levels of worry, and there is a continuing upward trend in ‘national worry’. These trends were visible before COVID, the invasion of Ukraine, and the conflict in Gaza, showing that something foundational and unrealised is happening within Western society. Measured levels of trust are declining quickly.

Andrew Oswald will discuss the nature of these concerning issues, exploring why an unhappy population puts a country's faith in government and the future of democracy at risk. He will leave plenty of time for questions and open discussion.

This lecture will be followed by a drinks reception, where you will have the opportunity to meet the speaker.

*Trends in Extreme Distress in the United States, American Journal of Public Health, 2020,110, 1538-1544.
*Unhappiness and Pain in Modern America, Journal of Economic Literature, 2019, 57, 385-402.

About the Speaker

Andrew Oswald is Professor of Economics and Behavioural Science at the University of Warwick. He has worked at Warwick for three decades. Recently, Andrew has been appointed Chair of a new Network Advisory Panel of the IZA Institute of Labour Economics in Bonn, Germany. His research is principally in applied economics and quantitative social science.

Since 2010 he has served on the board of reviewing editors of the journal Science. Andrew Oswald's recent work has included research on the behavioural science of climate change.

    ERINN 2024
    Palazzo Giustinian Lolin, Venice

    Runs from Monday, June 03 to Tuesday, June 04.

    The ERINN (Economic Research on Identity Norms and Narratives) Network brings together committed researchers who share a common vision concerning the centrality of social forces – particularly identity, norms, and narratives – in shaping economic outcomes. The basic premise is that economic activity takes place in social contexts, which structure and co-determine people’s preferences, beliefs, and constraints. The role of this network of researchers is to bring these processes to the forefront of economic analysis.

    ERINN will be hosting this year's annual conference in the University of Warwick's home in Venice.
